Tables and Figures
Give a title or caption to every table/figure. Place the title, left aligned, above the body of the table/figure and the caption, centred, below the table/figure.
Embed original figures in the document; we will extract them for optimum print quality and flexible online clarity on all platforms including high resolution screens. Avoid submitting low resolution images such as screenshots of small-size online documents and images. If in doubt, kindly consult us.
Number tables/figures with Arabic numerals, followed by a period and the title. If a table/figure, or the data in a table, is derived from other sources, a note must be provided at the bottom indicating the source.
In text, refer to tables / figures by their numbers instead of “the table above” or “the figure on page 2.”
